Beautiful Apartment in Red Light Old Quarter
The apartment shares the top two floors of this lovely canal side house overlooking the famous Oude Zijds Achterburgwal canal in de Wallen, the heart of Amsterdam’s old quarter and Red Light Light District. Complete with original features, the first floor comprises of a large living room at the back of the house with small veranda, which is super quiet even on a summer’s Saturday night. The front kitchen and dining room overlooks the canal and street from good distance where the view is forever interesting. The top attic floor has two cosy quiet bedrooms far from the hustle and bustle below with a fabulous large skylight and landing area. It’s fully furnished with wooden floors and rugs. The bathroom is typical old style Dutch housing with a shower, sink and WC but no bathtub I’m afraid.

Whet you arrive you will be met by my neighbour’s a Dutch family who live in the apartment below. They will be on hand to meet you with keys, show you apartment features and help with locations, direction, hiring bikes etc. to settle you in.

There are provisions in the kitchen provided for your refreshment after your trip: fresh milk, biscuits, tea, coffee etc. and you are welcome to use all within the residence - home away from home. There’s bed linen, towels provided and the fully equipped kitchen allows you to self cater and spend sometime indoors.

It’s a seven minute walk from Central Station and the location couldn’t be more ‘city center' with everything Amsterdam has to offer, museums, art galleries markets, cinema, theatre, night life, China Town, restaurants and great bars…it’s all waiting for you to discover with just an enjoyable short walk away.

Please note the apartment is not a hotel room but a home. I am afraid I cannot cater for stag parties or people coming strictly for revelry.

There are no special house rules ! Just the usual no smoking policy.

You can read all the previous reviews - all are mostly accurate. GREAT location, plenty of space. John was gone so Daniel hosted in his place - very helpful. I agree with all the positives stated in other reviews. The only negatives are that the place is a bit dingy and *I think* it needs a good refresh/cleaning. And, the stairs are steep - entrance is on third floor and another set of steps up to bedrooms. However, I assume that is just the way it is in Amsterdam. Regardless, if you're older and/or badly out of shape, give this some thought. But, the bottom line - I would definitely stay here again.

If you are coming to Amsterdam to explore the history of this remarkable city, you could not stay in a more appropriate place. This apartment occupies the top two floors of a canal house, one of the thousands of tall, narrow rowhouses that give Amsterdam its identity. This is not one of the elegant houses facing one of the three tree-lined canals built from 1613 onward. Rather, this house is in the medieval quarter of the city, overlooking the Oudezijds Achterburgwal (that means “Old Side rear bastion wall”), one of the oldest canals in the city (but not a particularly beautiful one). This house, probably built in the late 1600s, most likely belonged to one of the thousands of merchants who imported herring, timber, grain, or pitch from the Baltic for sale throughout Europe; or perhaps silk from Asia or tobacco from the New World. Along with his family’s residence on the upper floors the owner probably held his business office on the first floor (now a house of prostitution), and goods were probably hoisted from the pulley hook (ubiquitous to Amsterdam) into the loft under the steeply gabled roof; that space now houses your bedroom. Since we arrived via the Centraal railroad station (as everybody does), we spent our first couple of days in Amsterdam entirely within the confines of the old city (referred to as the “Old Side” and the “New Side,” but both sides are the same age). This allowed us to better imagine how the city felt at the start of its golden age, when the Dutch were fighting a grueling, 80-year war for independence from the Spanish while simultaneously revolutionizing international trade and becoming the wealthiest city in Europe. Only after a couple days did we venture out to explore the fruits of that struggle: the ring of beautiful canals that were essentially Amsterdam’s first suburb; the gardens of the Plantage; the former workmen’s alleys of the Jordaan; the monuments of the Museum Quarter; and the fabulous expressionist housing projects of the architecture’s Amsterdam School in the Oude Zuid (Old South). Of course, like any old city quarter, only the streets and the buildings remain, now taken over by new people like hermit crabs who put them to new uses. And in the 21st Century the use that has predominates this house’s district is tourism. The famous prostitutes’ show windows line the street, and cannabis coffehouses are plentiful. But these are interspersed with more conventional bars and restaurants, so that the atmosphere is more like contemporary Times Square than the Times Square of the 1970s. That said, it is a noisy neighborhood, right up until 4:00 in the morning—not obnoxious noise or blasting music, but the conversational noise of thousands of people milling about the streets. If you are a light sleeper, I recommend taking the back bedroom (we did, and it worked fine for us). If you stay for more than a week (we stayed for two), you will start to resent all of...

Hi Paul, Thanks for your sterling review of the apartment and the city environs. I confess I gained a little more knowledge of my home with your wonderful detailed historical and geographic references I am glad you busied yourself out and about and had time to relax at my home in the center of the old quarter. I was keen to know what you started to resent as your review fell short of explanation. John

John's place is great. It's exactly as described and John was a very clear, communicative host. His neighbor Paul who helped us check in and gave us great restaurant recommendations was also fantastic. John has a notebook with all the information you need in the apartment. Thanks for a great stay!

John's place is just as described and definitely in the thick of the RLD. Easy access to the main tourist thoroughfares, but close enough to get some more local experience too. Also, when we were ready to wind down the duplex was extremely convenient, quiet, and comfortable. John's neighbors are also extremely nice and helpful. They went out of their way to ensure we had what we needed. By far the best Airbnb location I've had thus far and I travel to a lot of exotic places. Thank you 1,000-fold!!

If you are looking to soak in the night life in Amsterdam, John's place is in the center of it all. The apartment gets full of natural light in the day and it makes you appriciate your surroundings. There are about 3 flights of stairs to reach the apartment.

I am a freelance photographer who specialises in NGO documentation on human and environmental issues. One of my treasured clients is Greenpeace where I was employed for many years as Head of Photography at the International office in London and Amsterdam. My work always takes my far afield and I am often away for long periods of time, yet I always love returning to the sanctuary of my home in Amsterdam.
When I am not working I enjoy catching up on culture - current affairs, reading, cinema, TV, spending quality time with my family and friends...
On my travels I have met many different people and cultures from around the world. This has taught me that everybody shares basic needs in life, love, friendship, family, a quality of life. It is this spirit I welcome new relations from whoever wishes to stay in my home.
